Meet Dr. Keegan Mclean (Chiropractor)
Meet Dr. Keegan Mclean
Hey, I’m Keegan.
I work with people who value access to a full range of possible healthcare options, and don’t want to be limited by where or when.
I bring the tools to get people moving better, and the understanding of how to achieve better mobility – even when I’m not around.
The majority of people I know have some kind of ache or pain that they’re struggling with, and while it’s satisfying to help people overcome that struggle through chiropractic care; my real joy comes from assisting people in changing the way they view and manage all aspects of their health.
Moving better, eating better, thinking better. These are all practices we can develop a better understanding in to see personal growth and healing.
I was told in high school that I would excel in a healthcare environment. I went on to experience first hand the benefits of chiropractic, and witness the affect it could have on those close to me. Seeing such a change in myself and others distilled a desire to learn more about the way humans move.
I started building a physiology and human movement background in Perth, at the University of Western Australia – one of the finest universities in Australia for this subject.
Then, when it was time for a sea change, I decided to move to Melbourne for a chance to really see what Chiropractic was all about.
I graduated with a distinction from RMIT in 2013 and since then have spent the majority of my time working in private practice throughout Australia. I also spent some time on placement in India, which provided me with an opportunity to work in communities with different needs – broadening my understanding.
When I’m not delivering world class mobile chiropractic care and developing my skills, you’ll find me running around a local park (chasing dogs), or enjoying a good dance to some fine music.
I love to travel, and have spent time all over this beautiful country. I have also ventured to a bunch of countries in North America, Asia, and Europe. Japan is next!

How long before I see results?
Based on your consultation, Dr. Keegan determines if you are a good candidate for mobile care he will prepare an individualised plan for you. The factors that he considers when creating your recommendations are:
- Your health goals and objectives
- The severity of your problem and how long it has been present
Having worked with hundreds of people just like you over the years, Dr. Keegan has learnt who he can help and who needs additional support.While some patients experience almost instantaneous results, most start to notice significant changes within the first 3-6 weeks of their care. Ultimately, the number of visits you’ll require depends on three main factors:
- Your goals and objectives – what are you trying to accomplish?
- How severe your problem is – how much breakdown has occurred?
- How long it has been going on for – is this a new or chronic problem?
Based on these three things Dr. Keegan will determine the perfect visit frequency for you. And because everyone is different (and we don’t have a crystal ball), we will check in regularly and perform comparative examinations to make sure that you are on the right track, to help you get the results you want. Its OK to have a break from care too, we understand that things change and we often need time away, all you have to do is let us know.
Based on your assessment results and goals, you will then be in the position to make some new choices about your care going forward – this may include protecting your investment by continuing care or taking what you now know and applying it as you see fit. The choice is yours. You may have heard the notion that once you go to a chiropractor you have to keep going back. No, you don’t have to keep coming. However, most patients understand that after investing time and money to restore their health, it makes good sense to protect their investment. Since our nervous system controls everything we do, it’s important to keep it running optimally. Like eating well, exercising or meditating – how long you choose to benefit is always up to you.

What to expect during a visit?
What Can I expect?
Many people are often overwhelmed, and maybe even nervous, when visiting a chiropractor for the first time.
Paperwork needs to be completed, an honest discussion needs to be had, and an action plan will follow. Dr. Keegan will have a conversation with you on what your health concerns and goals are.
The first visit is the information gathering time because this is where we begin with the question of ‘Why.’ This first meeting will last about 1-2 hours for both the consult and the examination. This is foundational because it will offer an opportunity to gain an understanding for visit two and beyond. In the second visit, between 30-60 minutes will be spent reviewing all the information gathered in the first visit in order to develop a custom program for each individual to follow.
With this being said, we want to make sure that you know EXACTLY what to expect so we have decided to go into greater detail below:
New Patient Forms
We encourage you to complete the NEW PATIENT FORMS prior to the first visit, this will save approximately 15-20 minutes. If for some reason you have any questions, you can email or note them down to go through during visit.
Instead of addressing “what” got you hear, Dr. Keegan looks at “why” this is happening in the first place. This is also known as finding the CAUSE of the problem and then creating a sustainable solution. Truly listening to members so that he can understand what challenges your experience, how it is impacting your life, and then what we can do together in order to resolve this issue. He has the intention to help members understand how nerve system interference can affect your health.
At the conclusion of the initial health consultation, we will perform a number of assessments including palpation, bio-structural postural assessment, and any necessary x-rays (radiographs). You are in control of your health.
Your condition might require an x-ray analysis in order to truly assess where the challenge resides within your body. If/when it is decided to perform a series of x-rays, this will allow clear determination of the next steps. To get x-rays completed, Dr. Keegan will write out a referral to a local radiology clinic who will then digitally send Dr. Keegan a copy and print out a copy for yourself. X-rays provide us with an objective diagnostic tool, along with important information including the position of the bones, and the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it.
During the phases of treatment Dr. Keegan will have set visits where he will re-examine where you are in terms of your initial presentation. This will allow you to reach and exceed your health goals. This will be catered to meet your needs, but could include ice or heat if you are experiencing pain, followed by nutritional advice, exercise tips, strategies for stress relief, etc.
Dr. Keegan recognizes that everybody is extremely unique and different, which is why he consistently updates and reviews. He looks forward to working with you so that YOU can live a life of complete health and vitality!
